These were my very first headphones for studio work. Albeit my studio is just a home studio, I still required something to mix in since my room was untreated. At first, I had trouble with the bass frequencies because these headphones handled them very well. And by that I mean there was simply too little lows in them, which made me crank out some more lows in the mix. But it didn't translate well on other sound systems, and I could tell I had mixed with too much bass. However, once I got used to this, I was able to compensate for it and my mixes turned a LOT better.
I actually managed to mix a whole metal album with these cans, and once I learned how they work, I mixed quite well. All the people I know who heard the album said it sounded great. It's thanks to these cans.
Do you believe this rating to be inaccurate or unacceptable for some reason?

I bought the 250 ohm version of these headphones and they work out of my laptop's headphone port.
These headphones are light as a feather and are incredibly comfortable. They are able. The frequency response is very even except towards the higher limits of human hearing.
remember that these headphones are meant to be light-weight for a reason. THey are intended for studio use and are meant to be taken care of.
Therefor, I will warn you that these headphones are not durable and are not meant to be abused beyond their intended use. If you are looking for more durable headphones that can take more abuse, with a decent response, you may want to check out the ATH-M50's. However, those are significantly heavier.
As far as frequency response goes and pleasurable listening. These headphones are well priced. There are better headphones even by this same company. However, it seems that at this price, these have better performance per unit currency.
Bottom line is, you are not going to find a perfect headphone for every application. So, make a choice. If you are looking for headphones for monitoring, mixing, general indoor listening, studio use then I highly suggest these.
